November 11, 2014

MONTREAL, Que.–Air Canada Cargo is introducing DuPont Tyvek Air Cargo Covers, now offered as an optional value-added feature for AC Fresh and AC Pharmacair shipments.

 “Further to testing the DuPont Tyvek Air Cargo Covers on perishable and pharmaceutical shipments and given its success and acceptance in the market place, we are pleased to provide our customers with this value added offering”, said Vito Cerone, Director, Marketing and Cargo Sales, Americas. 

The covers are specifically engineered to address the threat of cold chain breaks during air transit – when your temperature sensitive products are at the greatest risk for temperature excursions. Validated in a wide variety of applications worldwide, Tyvek air cargo covers provide proven protection against temperature excursions caused by extreme solar radiation, breathability, allowing oxygen to reach the product avoiding suffocation and damage,a breathable barrier allowing excess moisture to escape, protection from physical hazards such as rain, dust, and insects, and easy installation, the company said.

“We are proud of our long-standing collaboration with Air Canada Cargo to protect perishable and temperature-sensitive products through cold chain. Air Canada Cargo is deeply committed to offer the best cold chain solutions to their customers and was one of the earliest adopters of Tyvek Air Cargo Covers,” said Diego Boeri, DuPont Tyvek Global Business Director.

“We are pleased that Air Canada Cargo is extending this service broadly across their network and look forward to collaborating on future cold chain protection innovations for customers shipping perishable and pharmaceutical products.”
